Some of us women are old enough to remember when you could go to the gas station and a gentelman would come out and pump your gas. The gentelman were almost always kind and provided a good service for the station. The shell station here in pikeville has two good workers and the rest are not worth the salt in thier sweat. The woman that is in there can not speak english well enough to get you the product you ask for at the drive through window. The older man in thier does not know what you are asking for when you as for a particular product and will tell you he does not have it but when you go in the product is on the shelf. My real problem is with the guy who wears glasses and has very little hair and more then his share of rude. I am disabled and have always went there to get my gas and they have always pumped it for me with no trouble. One day I went to get gas and was asked to wait till they served some coustomers and cleared the store out some. I did not mind the few minutes to sit there but then the bald guy came out and smarted off to me for no reason and refused to pump my gas. I left and the next time I went in to get gas the young thin man cme and pumped gas for me and I told him how I was treated and he did not know why he treated me rudly. I went through there today and the bald guy came to the drive through and smarted off to me again and there were people there who saw it. I dont understand how he can treat people so badly. I told him I would not be there again and he said thats good because they have millions of people there daily. The price of a card for your phone should be no more then the amount of the card plus the state tax but not there. I purchased a 15 dollar card there the other day and was charged 17 dollars and some change. I ask why so much tax and they said they put state tax on the card and added that together and then put another tax on the total of that. I have never paid 2 dollars and some change on a 15 dollar card. I wish all the people in Pikeville would band together and not do business with them to show them that they are not the only people in town and that they are cheating the people with all the extra tax. If I am not wrong it is against the law to tax a product twice at the same sell. I know Lyndon and the small young guy are very nice and I would not want to bother thier way of income but the others need to either go to where they came from or learn respect of the people that are born in america. Just because OUR GOVERNMENT gives them the money to start a business and they have a card that allows them to not have to pay taxes on thier products does not give them the right to be rude or to cheat us of our hard earned money. I know for fact that they can go to Freds or any other store and buy products on special paying no taxes and take it to thier store and resale it for twice the money and double the tax. Where is the right in that. We as Americans are not given that choice. Our own government will not give us money to start a business and not have to pay it back. But I am just AMERICAN not any one special

I know what you are talking about.They are very rude to people there.But let the nasty women that go there to meet up with their men and buy pills,or what ever else they can buy.and they are treated with the up most kindness.I have seen and heard them do it and it is not right at all.They have cameras there,and the police should ask to see all the crimes that go on,in the parking lot of that so called business.Ihave started taken my business back up to express market,they are alot more respected,to others,and will come outside to help you also.But lady,dont expect alot of them from the shell to leave from there,they like their meeting place,drug dealing,women and man hunting place.One day this small town will get back to a nice place to live,just keep praying about it.
Dont ya

Why are you complaining about something you can do nothing about? GO TO ANOTHER STORE! They don't make the rules, they are just playing the game. The CHOICE of whether to shop in this particular store (and support something you think is wrong) is YOURS. They don't have to run their business according to what you like but you don't have to help with their support by paying for their products. Does that make any sense?

I agree business owners shouldn't be rude to the customers. I also remember the full service gas stations and I also remember they charged higher prices for gas too. Maybe they are tired of waiting on you and not getting any extra at the pump. And if you can get up and go in to see the products on the shelf then get out and pump the gas yourself. Quit being so lazy, because if your so disabled that you can't pump your own gas then you shouldn't even be driving..If you have no legs or are in a wheel chair full time then I'm sorry you just need to go to a different gas station. But if it's just laziness then pump it yourself and stop using the disability card.

Where these people come from,there r two class of people.Very poor and the wealthy.The wealthy come here.Our gov gives them seven years of free tax.Then they switch ownership to another member of the family and get another seven years no tax.We have become educated fools:::

Ys she comes from good family.However there seems to be some people in this area willing to put a knife in her back saying things they shouldnt say-i believe it because they hope she fails so they can pick it up cheap.In essence thats the problem too many backbiters who want failure not sucess.

Your all full of it. Ravi, the man who wears glasses is super kind if your kind to him. Maddy, the young man is also very sweet. If you don't like their manner of buisness go elsewhere you fool! I think they treat people better than most of the ones whom we've known for years! Try treating people the way you would like to be treated and you might be amazed at the response you get. Ravi, Maddy thanks for always being sweet everytime I'm there. You have my full support and my buisness!
